Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Art of the Movie still comes with a slipcase. Inside, the 232-page hardcover book has the Winter Soldier facing off Captain America on the cover. That's the art for the limited edition poster released at San Diego Comic Con 2013, and it's in the book.
And just like the earlier artbook, this is also packed with lots of artwork.
You'll get to see Captain America with his new suits, the stealth one he used on The Lemurian Star ship, the old (but updated) suit he stole from his own memorial while Stan Lee was working a security guard there, and also the other suit variations.
The other characters with more coverage would be The Winter Soldier and Falcon. These two have more pages dedicated to their costume designs. Together with Captain America, they have the best costumes. As for Black Widow, Nick Fury, the pirates, mercenaries, they only have too few pages among themselves.
There are quite a lot of scene paintings, and those look great. Many are double page spreads.
Environment art are for The Triskelion, the offices inside, Helicarrier Bay and Camp Lehigh. There aren't a lot of prop art. Strangely, there's no overall shot of the Helicarrier, although we have Nick Fury's awesome SUV.
There is substantial amount of storyboards included for several key scenes, but they will leave you wanting more because the sequences are quite long and the full length storyboards cannot be included. They are real cool to look at though, to relive the moment.Read more ›
Just like Marvel's Thor: The Dark World - The Art of the Movie, this one is laid out chronologically vis-á-vis the film. Cap's redesigned costume is given an overview, as is Black Widow's, but where the book really shines is with the Winter Soldier and Falcon. Bucky's section is especially interesting because he's the only modern character in the film. The Winter Soldier was created in the late 2000's, unlike Cap and Falcon who have been around for 50+ years. In the comics, he has a domino mask and the concept artists pay homage to that with the military ant-glare paint around his eyes under the goggles. The design and physical implementation of his metal arm was very cool. Falcon also gets a lot of pages devoted to his design, and deservedly so. The various concepts for his wings are incredibly interesting as well as how the SFX render them in the film.
The other really strong point of the book is how physical locations, like the Triskellion and Smithsoneon, were conceptualized to fit real-world locations. The section on the museum has full page spreads of the murals drawn for the film, and has a beautiful fold-out rendering.Read more ›
The still images from the movie are great, but hey - I have already seen the movie. It is the drawings that make this book truly spectacular, the comic history they depict and explore. I adore the center fold-out, and the cover is simply AMAZING (features Bucky and Steve, metal arm slamming against shield scene). Very inspiring for the artist in all of us!
Comes very well packaged, inside a hard cover that protects yet another, drawn, hardcover.
Definitely get the hardcover version. Much more durable - and beautiful!
My only quibble (and not enough to deduct a star) is that I felt there were too many black and white storyboards - would much rather have more color design pics, behind the scenes stuff, etc.
